Student should attempt to login to the computer system using their log in information. If unable to do so, may require a password reset at the User Account Center.

Most classes will be marked “unavailable” until the instructor sets it to open, which is usually on the first day of classes, but sometimes before then. NOTE: When a student enrolls in a course that uses Blackboard, he/she will not see that course listed in Blackboard until the next day due to the time it takes for processing.

Blackboard provides a “Student Support” tab at the top of the Blackboard page.
